Magnificat by Rupert Lang – iTunes only

Chor Leoni commissioned Vancouver composer Rupert Lang to write Magnificat for us. Using the unusual combination of mezzo-soprano soloist and male chorus, Lang seeks to express Mary’s personal, human response to the formal biblical text, with wonderful results.

  1. Directed with terrific zest and sensitivity by Diane Loomer, the forces at her command, the all-male Chor Leoni, the Elektra Women’s Choir, and members of the CBC Vancouver Orchestra, along with mezzo-soprano Mariateresa Magisano, soprano Lambroula Maria Pappas, and tenor Bruce Hoffman as the three remarkable soloists rose to the very gates of heaven. If they had been any more celestial, those gates might have opened to welcome them in as permanent residents.
